Paradise found at Queen’s Wharf
Palm trees are transforming the river’s edge into a sub-tropical landscape showcasing the start of things to come for the world-class precinct.
Active transport users and pedestrians are the first to see the progress along the Bicentennial Bikeway which also includes the Velo Café and exciting new public spaces.
Locally sourced native weeping cabbage palms now line The Landing marking significant progress along the waterfront.
Destination Brisbane Consortium Project Director Simon Crooks said that the leafy landscape of The Landing will compliment Brisbane’s unique climate and lifestyle.
“The Landing will provide amble space for Brisbane’s outdoor lifestyle and maximise the city’s amazing subtropical climate.
“This newly created parkland will be a place that locals and tourists alike will be proud to visit.”
Multiplex Project Manager Tyson Macdonald said the team has been working tirelessly after the flood event that saw parts of the Bicentennial Bikeway severely impacted by weather earlier in the year.
“Over 3800m3 of soil has been transported onto The Landing supporting the planting of mature trees, including palms on the two suspended concrete structures,” Mr Macdonald said.
“The mature palms range from 7.5 metres to 10.5 metres high and were delivered to site on a semi-trailer truck.
“An innovative root ball anchoring system has been used allowing the palms to be held into place while the roots are established.
“The next phase of works will include service installation, building concrete terrace walls and continuing the pavement works – in spring the turf will be laid.”
This area will open from mid-2023 and complement the 500 metres of The Mangrove Walk riverfront completed by Multiplex in 2019.
The public space, including The Landing will see 340 native water gum, lilly-pilly and palm trees with around 20,000 plants across the entire 7.5 hectares of the project.
